Car, Taxi or Bus?
We always suggest to hire a car if you want to travel round and visit places. The two houses are in the countryside, on top of a hill. Shops and restaurants are easily reachable by car and this is the best way to spend your time in this area, especially for longer periods of time. A car/minivan can be rented at the airports of Pisa and Florence and also from Pontedera train station. Just ask us and we can book it for you.
We can also book a taxi service for your transfers.

If you have a car, don’t forget to keep the lights on when driving on motorways and highways. The blue parking spaces are upon payment of a fee, the white ones are free, but some white parking places in big cities such as Pisa or Florence can be reserved for the residents. (It. “riservato ai residenti”)
